1919 Egret Feathers - Squeeellll
Carolyn: I spoke to you at the ASG meeting about some egret feathers I have that my mother brought back from France in 1918 when she came to America with the US Army Nurses after WWI . I found them and a couple of other items you might be able to use in your historical costumes that you teach history with. Please contact me so you can come to see if they would be of any use to you. Claire
My fingers flew in writing a response back to her. Along with the feathers she gave me beautiful netted scarf from her mother and a lamb collar. I was also fortunate to get a picture of Claire's mother, Florence B Myers in her nurse uniform. I'm thinking of using these feathers on a Regency Turban on the next cruise in May.
